Rice tests wireless data delivery over active TV channels Rice University engineers have demonstrated the first system that allows wireless data transmissions over UHF channels during active TV broadcasts. If the technology were incorporated into next-generation TVs or smart remotes, it could significantly expand the reach of so-called “super Wi-Fi” networks in urban areas.

Zhang and Knightly’s report on the research, titled “WATCH: Wi-Fi in Active TV Channels,” won best-paper honors last month at Association of Computing Machinery’s MobiHoc 2015 conference in Hangzhou, China.

The project was built on with a custom daughtercard on WARP v3 hardware and the WARPLab 7 Reference Design.
